Instagram has been putting a lot of effort into developing new features for Stories. And about a year ago, they introduced a new music sticker. Now, is it something you have used before? If the answer is no, don’t worry. Today we are going to teach how to use the Instagram music sticker, and how to apply it to your Stories.
But, first, there’s something you need to know. Unfortunately, this feature is not available worldwide. So, if you don’t see it within your list of stickers, you will need to wait until it becomes available in your country.
Well, either that, or you can also read our article on how to use the music feature even if it’s not available in your region. To do so, just click here. Now, for those of you who have the fortune of having the Instagram music sticker available to use, here’s everything you need to know.
What Is The Instagram Music Sticker
The Instagram music sticker is pretty much a feature that allows you to select tracks for whatever you want to share on your Stories. For instance, let’s imagine that you have a fitness related account. Wouldn’t it be great if you could complement a motivational story with some background music?
Well, that’s precisely why the music sticker was designed. Instagram Stories is used by about 400 million users every day. So, it certainly helps creators at the time of creating a Story. Moreover, you can search the songs by genre, mood, and even trend.
How To Use It?
So, how do we use it? Well, it’s pretty easy. First of all, open up Instagram on your phone and enter your Stories camera. Then, you will need to either take a photo, shoot a video, or choose a pic from your gallery. Once you have completed those steps, you will be able to edit what you want to share.
After that, tap into the stickers section of the editor and select music. Doing so will allow you to access a songs library from where you can choose the track that fits your Story best. Just in case you don’t have a clue of what song to use, there is a preview button you can use.
Finally, select a fragment of the song you want to use and add it to your Stories. If you’re sure you don’t need to add anything else, you can go ahead and publish the Story for your followers to see.
When your followers or close friends visit your Stories, they will be able to hear the music you selected. They will also be able to see a sticker showing the artist’s name, and the song title. One more thing to know is that you can actually select a song even before you shoot a video.
As a matter of fact, when you open your Story’s camera, you will have the music option right below the record button. Simply tap it and follow the steps that we listed a few paragraphs above. Then, when you shoot a video, the song you selected will play.
